, from health care, from these markets that we're just scratching the surface in terms of technology applications. >> host: will panasonic still be manufacturing televisions? >> guest: i don't know. >> host: will the word "television" still be in use? >> guest: probably old people like me will still be using the word "television." and i think displays will still have a prominent role in the home for communicating content and information. >> host: joe taylor, chairman and president of panasonic in north america, this is "the communicators" on c-span. "the communicators" is on location at ces international 2013, the technology trade show. more programming next week. >> just ahead, president obama speaks at a ceremony honoring recipients of this year's national medals for science, technology and innovation. after that we're live with a national health policy conference with industry leaders and representatives of government who will discuss what to expect in health care policy this year. and later more live coverage as former first lady laura bush speaks at the susan g. komen for the cu
with mexico and with all our technology and everything we do, we still have -- could you imagine now you are trying to control them all at the same time that is going to be a difficult thing to do. >> let me invite the panelists to address it and i eluted to this in my brief introduction on one excuse or part of all the extra constitutional measures the fact that they didn't occur in a vacuum. all of a rush of thinking and platitude profound problems, soldiers not being paid that are working with the radicals that paid better and more regularly. there was the question of involvement in but individuals it's well known in interpol and other law enforcement those that were involved as business partners with the people was illicit extremists because they are working together and everyone is happy together. >> before you fallen to a saturation of the insurgency their political legitimacy, the counterinsurgency without political legitimacy so how did you get the sequencing and how you get back to that of the discussion that i think with the emphasis on raising funds and military operation trai
, information technology, even in accounting and finance. my frequent visits to employers across the state affirmed these reports. our state needs a way to accurately measure employment on a real-time basis. we need a better way to quickly measure trends and identify workforce needs by region, so we're working with members of the legislature to enact a system to help us connect workers to jobs in areas of great need from current and future employers. [applause] during the past year we partnered with the wisconsin covenant foundation to provide grants to technical colleges, employers in various regions, to improve workforce development. the next step will come in the state budget as we align new resources with our critcall needs in the workplace of the just a few days ago we graduated the first class under the wisconsin workforce partnership program. diane joined the program because she was unemployed after having been laid off and was looking for a new career. diane has already been hired by a corporation in new holstein as a c and c operator. she started work literally yesterday. diane is
that has lots of technology in the southern part of the district. some from microsoft and many other technology companies. by a medical device companies and also a very rich agricultural industry of dairy and berries and specialty crops the immigration is very important for many different aspects. i wanted to start with you. we talked about h-1b but you also talk good a start of the visa program and i wondered if you could elaborate what you think needs to be in such a program and how that would work in conjunction with the program. >> it would do wonders for seattle and new york and even more for silicon valley. there are literally tens of thousands of companies the would be started almost overnight if we gave these entrepreneurs or would-be entrepreneurs the ability to do that. they can start companies you could start a company that you cannot work for it. so we would suddenly have a boom in the entrepreneurship like before. it can be done independently with everything else we are doing. let's get that done. the big companies are lobbying very hard for it. they need it. there are d
but not least, the use of technology. we have the ability to share information with technology that we have today with our computers and internet, having databases where we can share information with doctors and hospitals. again, keep the cost down and make sure that the consumer has good information, thorough information and make the choice. this empowers the consumer, which is i think what we all probably appreciate. and, frankly, at the end of the day i trust the consumer to make the decisions that are in the best interest of them. we have too much of a government mentality that thinks well, we know best. we need to choose for you. because you may make the wrong decision. and i think that's just wrongheaded. so let me just conclude this part by saying that what i'm talking about in utah here is a way of addressing this reform. it may not be the way. other states have different demographics. we have a young population in utah, we're the youngest of in america. our meeting age is only 29.2 here's a picture i'm the oldest guy in utah. [laughter] but if you compare our demographics to, say o
technology fields and many, many people in santa cruz, computer science. and that's a large -- a large part of her business. we do tax returns were living and we liked tax advisor services your and so in our business, we are not a products company your car business is people, people with knowledge, ideas, innovation, helping clients solve their most challenging management and technology problem. from around the world. with people who have industry expertise that we deploy in every time and quick manner. and time and speed is everything. so within our broad workforce, our larger u.s. workforce, you know, we complement our u.s. workforce with foreign workers. and mobility is very important, so we hire people from college campuses on -- we also use immigrant visas as well and green card. for people on h-1bs, or people, citizens working with deloitte. and then we also use, we look at people who have expertise and specialized knowledge from around the world that we can bring into the united states. so we leverage other -- but it really is a matter of leveraging those to ensure that our clients r
producer of oil in the country. why? we have the technology. those of you who remember the 6 million dollar man, lee majors, it's because we've had dramatic improvements in the technology and hydraulic brockton, horizontally but we've also had improvement in deepwater drilling and canadian oil sands development. so we've seen this technological improvements that have really dramatically changed the course of production that we would've never dreamed of. so what i'm going to close with is that we have an opportunity based on an ihs study to generate millions of jobs, trillions of investment, and billions if not trillions of federal, state and local revenues. we have the opportunity to do this just for nonconventional oil alone. so basically what we have right now is a choice. we can either make wise decisions moving over to develop, indeed all of the above resources, including oil, gas, coal, nuclear, renewables and so on, or we can repeat some mistakes of the past. in particular some of the proposals for taxing the oil and gas industry are repeated mistakes of the past. and we have potentia
to start that today. new technology we honor our emerging, changing the facts as so many thought that they knew had in our nation's energy discourse is really just not keeping a. it's time, perhaps despite that's a different perspectives to come together to address the crucial and difficult issues surrounding energy. desiring to hit the restart button, i've worked with my resource committee staff to prepare a report that we call energy 2020, a vision for america's energy future. often you'll see these nicely bound copies of reports that have been made and you look through them and look at the charts for you go to the section that is directly per btu and then it fades. i'm not going to let us say. it is incumbent upon me, my staff come in the energy committee to make sure what we do with this document we've been working on for a year now is to really utilize it, to use it is that luke rant, if you will. on the first thing i've got to tell you as we talk about this energy 2020 if there is no energy policy that is a perfect vision. but we recognize you've got the year 2020 perching
be, as a force, agile, flexible, quickly deployable, at the cutting edge of technology. that can be an effective force for the future. agility, flexibility, the ability to move fast in crisis happens. that is what distinguishes our defense policy in the united states. secondly, it was important for us to project power. into the pacific, also into the middle east. those are the key areas where we have some serious problems. north korea, ron, we need to have a power presence in most areas. that is where the greatest area for conflict was. we need to maintain a presence elsewhere in the world. it was developed with the idea, an innovative idea to send our forces into countries, latin america, europe, other places, to train and exercise and work with that country, to develop their capabilities. to develop new partnerships and alliances, so that they can become part of this security force for the future. fourth, we have to maintain more than one enemy at a time, having the capability to beat them. we have to be able to respond to both of those conflicts. confront an enemy and defeat a
, and there have also been technology advancements in places like iraq and afghanistan where we can survey of the borders. my friends on the arizona mexican border it gets as hot as 140 degrees and that is hard on people. as we have to do the technology side of testing what by the way they've been able to do and i am confident that we can make that progress to ensure our citizens that their lives are secure. we are in a secure building. every night to have drug people going across the property. they deserve security. but we can achieve that. we can achieve that and we are on the way to doing that. >> you said about six of the members are going to go with you. what can you see when you go to the border? >> first of all, they can see the fastness of the border to be the second thing they can see is the improvements that have been made. third, they can see the things that need to be done. talk to the men and women on the ground in the border patrol. the ones who are out there every day literally risking their lives to read there's nothing like having eyeballs and chuck and i found on the issu
that technology can and should change how we educate children is pretty remarkable. and there are schools in new york city, in john's state, where again let me be clear between testing and evaluation are i'm not a big live in a whole bunch of testing but where every single day teachers our understanding not what they taught but what their children learned. it's an important distinction. the goal of teachers is not to teach. the goal of teachers is to have their children learn. so every single day using technology, teachers have real-time feedback as to what their children learned that day. not once a year, but think about how empowered that is, to understand this is what my children learned and comprehended and need to move to the next level of this is what they didn't get. figure out a way to reach each to feedback on a daily basis so they come in the next morning with a specific game plan, instructional plan for that child. think a radically different that is any teacher teaching the class of 30 or 35 all the same way at the same time day after day after day, having no real insight into our my
fields, that's and science technology engineering and mathematics would be granted a green card upon graduation. this is sort of in adopting of senator jeff likes older proposal called -- called a stable and. i'm glad to see it in the. this is a very good mood but it's relatively small by comparison to the size of the entire system. the blueprint also talks vaguely about the looming backlog. so that is similar to legislative in the last couple years, that would mean removing the per country limitation on highly skilled green cards and workers coming in. as the system stands right now only 7% of workers in the program are allowed to come from a single country every year. leading to long backlogs for workers from places like india, china, mexico and the philippines. sometimes backlog for longer than a decade. so that would be a big improvement to the system. generally i think most people can agree that you have a very good reason to block highly skilled and educated immigrants from coming into the trendy. this seems like low-hanging fruit of any kind of immigration reform effort. and i
in the senate proposal for improving technology on the border. well, they've been working on that. fbi net lasted five years, and then they finally abandoned it. they never quite achieved what they were looking to do. so it's very, very complex, and it is very, very costly if they implement what they want to do. >> host: just one statistic as far as the southern border is concerned, the u.s./mexico border about 2,000 miles, the fence that currently exists about 650 miles. >> guest: right. but, you know, a fence is not appropriate for every situation, and what they have is not a continuous fence like the great wall of china. they have a series of barriers that make it difficult to come across or make it more likely that you're going to be caught. and what happens a lot in this debate is that there's a static idea of the border. the border is dynamic, and the enforcement has to be dynamic. what you have to realize is as they enforce different sectors, the challenge moves to a different place. so the border patrol closed off the -- or made tighter -- the urban areas where people were coming a
pipeline network built with sound environmental stewardship and the best modern technology. nothing has changed about the security to be gained from using more fuel produced at home and by close and stable ally. and nothing has changed about the need for america to remain a place where businesses still build things. we hope that you will follow through on your directive of march 22, 2012, to federal agencies to move forward vital energy infrastructure like keystone x.l. the state of nebraska is nearing completion of the new pipeline route within nebraska. with that process near completion, we look forward to an affirmative determination of national interest soon." that letter we sent to the president in november. a bipartisan letter, nine republican senators, nine democrat senators. to date we've received no direct response from the white house despite that there's clearly strong bipartisan support for the project. the only response we received was not from the white house, but rather from the state department. and let me read that letter, very short too. from david s. adams, assistant
sands is being accomplished in situ, a technology that makes oil sands carbon footprint comparable to conventional drilling. in fact, the oil sands industry has reduced greenhouse gas emissions per barrel of oil produced by an average of 26% since 1990, with some facilities achieving reductions as high as 50%. today, heavy crude oil from the middle east and even from california produces more carbon emissions over its life cycle than the canadian oil sands. let me repeat that. today, heavy crude that we import from the middle east and even some of the california heavy crudes produce more carbon emissions over their life cycle than canadian oil sand oil. we also need to factor in that if the pipeline is not built from alberta to the united states, a similar pipeline will be built to canada's pacific coast. that's what i show right here on this chart. from there, the oil will be shipped across the pacific ocean, a much larger sensitive ecosystem than the sand hills which we're not even going through now, to be refined at facilities in china with weaker environmental standards and more
